Ultrathin -
35% Thinner than standard Aramid vests!

100% GoldFlex® or a proprietary hybrid construction to make a super-thin vest that is as comfortable as our Premium Aramid vest, and even more concealable.

GoldFlex® provides slightly better blunt trauma performance than Aramid.  Another advantage is being intrinsically waterproof and positively buoyant (Aramid is neutrally buoyant).

The tradeoff is that GoldFlex® doesn't have the decades-long durability track record of Aramid, and is more easily damaged by high heat abuse than Aramid. The Honeywell Material Safety Data Sheet recommends: "In order to extend product shelf-life, avoid storage conditions at which temperatures can exceed 150 F (66 C)".

Level II is incredibly thin and easily concealed - the best choice for concealment under very light clothing...

Level III-A gives you more protection than Level II with conceal-ability even BETTER than an Aramid Level II vest.


Fitting the Vest to YOUR Body

The real-world performance difference.


The biggest difference in terms of how happy you are going to be with your vest, is how well it fits YOUR body. Our ProMAX Concealable is a great vest that we help you get fitted properly, so it covers your vitals comfortably.

Not just big 4" increments between sizes, but available in precise 2" Chest / Belly size increments, and 1" length increments, (from X-Short to XXX-Long). Precise sizing means you can get a great fit for your body.  For example...

Do you want a gap on the sides for ventilation, or a full wrap (almost no gap), or an overlap for seamless protection?

We will show you exactly how your ProMAX Concealable will cover you before you buy.
How long is the vest?

There are too many "big-name" vests out there that skimp on the length coverage. If you can't get a straight answer on the front centerline measurement (bottom of neck scoop to bottom of the vest), don't buy the vest!

We will show you exactly how much vertical coverage you will see - to ensure proper coverage AND that you don't get a vest that is too long (that will put pressure on your throat, when you bend over).

Facts
Benefit

Pistol Bullet    Superb 100% US-made workmanship, without a lot of unnecessary (and expensive) cosmetic glitz.

Independent Lab Tested to NIJ Standard 0101.05 or 06

5-Year Manufacturer Warranty plus our Satisfaction Guarantee

Protection you can trust


Made in the USA

Pistol Bullet   

Generous chest coverage and cut to maximize side protection under the armpit (one of your most exposed areas if you use a Weaver, side-angled stance), or if you are getting flanked by multiple assailants

FULL-wrap side coverage standard (unless you request a gap for ventilation).  

More coverage, more protection.

As we say in How to Select Body Armor, a lot of people are worried about whether their vest will stop the exotic, uncommon pistol threats – but what's usually more important is to cover MORE of your body against the COMMON pistol threats.

By all means get a Level III-A for the uncommon threats, but the more important factor is how well the vest covers YOUR body (and that it is comfortable and concealable enough that you actually wear it).
Pistol Bullet     In stock, ready to ship, in many sizes / models, or made-to-order in 3 to 6 weeks. (Rush / Expedite for an additional fee.) Protection available when you need it.

When comparing weights...

Please be aware that we quote ACTUAL weights for a normal size Medium vest, ready to wear.

We do NOT play the artificial "weight loss" games you may encounter elsewhere, such as quoting the weight of an Small, Short, WITHOUT an outershell carrier.

We recommend buying a vest based on weight AND coverage area, not just weight.

All that extra coverage does weigh slightly more. If you buy a vest based just on weight you are likely losing coverage, or buying a vest that just barely passes NIJ standards, instead of passing with a significant over-performance.



Upgrade Options
Sweat-Wicking Undershirts

The special moisture wicking fabric wicks sweat away three times faster than cotton. So sweat evaporates faster, and you stay a little cooler -and a lot drier - under your vest. Plus, you don't have to wash your vest as often...

Panels for Test Shooting

If you would like to see how well armor works, nothing beats inspiring confidence like shooting one yourself.

A ballistic panel (half vest) that did not meet our strict standards for Police Surplus vests. Not to be relied on for protection of life, but great for test shooting.

You would want to have a suitable backstop for the vest. A concrete wall is too hard for a valid test, and can make a good vest fail. Swinging free in the air can let a bad vest pass. So a punching bag or other semi-soft backstop is ideal.
